COST Action ES0904,
to be published in
COST Action ES0904
The Action ES0904 is meant to be open at the international level and all countries/institutions are very welcome as partners, with subsequent representatives in the Management Committee (MC).
Participation requires the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to be signed, depending on the country of the applicant. Whether it is considered as a COST country or not (see the list of COST countries), the MoU will have to be signed at his/her national or institutional level (see join a COST Action).
After the MoU is signed, the COST Action ES0904 provides with tools (see, basically: WG meetings and STSMs) to help the partner for international cooperation with the other partner countries/institutions of the Action and also, but to a less extent, to other countries.
The procedure is generally straightforward but please, contact the Chair of the Action before starting.
COST Countries are presented in the figure below in blue (click to enlarge). COST has always been open to non-COST countries regardless of whether they are one of the four Reciprocal Agreements countries (Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa in pink on the map below), fall under the COST special policy towards neighbouring countries (in green), or are countries that do not belong to these two instruments.
The four reciprocal agreements are an answer to a concrete
need from these countries’ scientiﬁc communities to obtain easy access
to collaboration with European researchers. Each agreement is an equal
partnership between COST and the country concerned. Both parties
have earmarked speciﬁc budgets for scientists and researchers involved
in COST Actions to gain experiences from their colleagues on the other
side of the world.
